NASB — Proverbs 13 — KJV

Contrast the Upright and the Wicked

  1 A awise son [accepts his] father’s discipline,
  But a bscoffer does not listen to rebuke.
  2 From the fruit of a man’s mouth he Iaenjoys good,
  But the IIdesire of the treacherous is bviolence.
  3 The one who aguards his mouth preserves his life;
  The one who bopens wide his lips Icomes to ruin.
  4 The soul of the sluggard craves and [gets] nothing,
  But the soul of the diligent is made fat.
  5 A righteous man ahates falsehood,
  But a wicked man Ibacts disgustingly and shamefully.
  6 Righteousness aguards the Ione whose way is blameless,
  But wickedness subverts the IIsinner.
  7 There is one who apretends to be rich, but has nothing;
  [Another] Ipretends to be bpoor, but has great wealth.
  8 The ransom of a man’s life is his wealth,
  But the poor hears no rebuke.
  9 The alight of the righteous Irejoices,
  But the blamp of the wicked goes out.
  10 Through insolence Icomes nothing but strife,
  But wisdom is with those who receive counsel.
  11 Wealth [obtained] by Ifraud dwindles,
  But the one who gathers IIby labor increases [it].
  12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
  But desire Ifulfilled is a tree of life.
  13 The one who adespises the word will be Iin debt to it,
  But the one who fears the commandment will be brewarded.
  14 The Iteaching of the wise is a afountain of life,
  To turn aside from the bsnares of death.
  15 aGood understanding produces favor,
  But the way of the treacherous is hard.
  16 Every aprudent man acts with knowledge,
  But a fool Idisplays folly.
  17 A wicked messenger falls into adversity,
  But aa faithful envoy [brings] healing.
  18 Poverty and shame [will come] to him who aneglects Idiscipline,
  But he who regards reproof will be honored.
  19 Desire realized is sweet to the soul,
  But it is an abomination to fools to turn away from evil.
  20 aHe who walks with wise men will be wise,
  But the companion of fools will suffer harm.
  21 aAdversity pursues sinners,
  But the brighteous will be rewarded with prosperity.
  22 A good man aleaves an inheritance to his Ichildren’s children,
  And the bwealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
  23 aAbundant food [is in] the fallow ground of the poor,
  But Iit is swept away by injustice.
  24 He who awithholds his Irod hates his son,
  But he who loves him IIbdisciplines him diligently.
  25 The arighteous Ihas enough to satisfy his appetite,
  But the stomach of the bwicked is in need.

Sundry observations of moral virtues, and their contrary vices (10-24).

1 ¶ A wise son [heareth] his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. 2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of [his] mouth: but the soul of the transgressors [shall eat] violence. 3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: [but] he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. 4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and [hath] nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. 5 A righteous [man] hateth lying: but a wicked [man] is loathsome, and cometh to shame. 6 Righteousness keepeth [him that is] upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet [hath] nothing: [there is] that maketh himself poor, yet [hath] great riches. 8 The ransom of a man's life [are] his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke. 9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised [is] wisdom. 11 Wealth [gotten] by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. 12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but [when] the desire cometh, [it is] a tree of life. 13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. 14 The law of the wise [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. 15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors [is] hard. 16 Every prudent [man] dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open [his] folly. 17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador [is] health. 18 Poverty and shame [shall be to] him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured. 19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but [it is] abomination to fools to depart from evil. 20 He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. 21 Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed. 22 A good [man] leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner [is] laid up for the just. 23 Much food [is in] the tillage of the poor: but there is [that is] destroyed for want of judgment. 24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. 25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.
